  • Cast iron skillet or other type of oven safe skillet


  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2 Tbs butter avocado, olive oil, or ghee would also work (whole30 options)
  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes diced
  • 1-2 cups kale shredded - add more if you like greens
  • 4 large eggs
  • 8-12 links sausage or bacon. I like to precook my sausage to speed up the process.
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Dice onions and place in a skillet over medium heat, and sauté onions with oil, ghee, or butter. If you haven't precooked sausage or bacon, add it to the skillet until the meat is cooked through.
  • Dice up sweet potatoes while the onions and sausage are cooking.
  • Take out sausages and/or bacon once they are cooked and set aside.
  • Add diced sweet potatoes to the skillet and cook, mixing every few minutes. 
  • Chop up cooked sausage (or bacon) and kale.
  • When the sweet potatoes start to get soft, add in the cooked sausage and fresh kale (de-stemmed). Mix thoroughly.
  • Crack eggs over the top of the hash.
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper over the skillet and place in the hot oven for 10-15 minutes. The eggs will still look uncooked, even when they're ready.
  • Take it out of the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.


I love using ready kale that has been washed, de-stemmed, and chopped. It makes it super easy to just add it to meals.
To make this recipe even faster, you could meal prep and cook the meat and the potatoes ahead of time in the oven. Chop up the sweet potatoes, toss with a little avocado or olive oil, and roast until fork-tender. The next morning, sauté the onions, throw in the cooked potatoes, sausage, and some fresh kale, and bam: super fast and healthy meal.
When you bake the eggs, they will still look under done, even when they are done. 10-15 minutes is really all they need, or else they get a little rubbery.
Add colorful peppers, mushrooms, or carrots for a healthy, even more veggie-loaded meal.
